I tried this by grabbing the destination url out of the java applet's param 
and it produced code 200 (success) in apache logs and reached the calback 
function. I have a watchdog in there ATM.
I have been flushing caches after just about every change in code ;-)
I used firefox and I tried the same URL with wget, both succeed.
I also created a test page node with the url in it, that worked too.
The applet remains the same, it never reaches the callback, the paths are 
identical to the D6 version.

The applet uses POST and I do wonder if D7 is rejecting it because it has no 
'record' of a form and sees no form_id....

Anyway thanks for your suggestions, it helped eliminate a few possibilities.
